I've only ever seen this behaviour when the cookies have not been set
properly. How are you setting them?

You can double check using erlang:get_cookie(). and change the cookie with
erlang:set_cookie(node(), cookie) (both in the erlang module hiding (err,
documented) under the kernel application).

If that all doesn't work then I'd suspect something pretty horrible
